2014 Art in the Park

(rain date Sunday, October 12, 2014)
11am - 3:30pm 

I am participating in the Art in the Park show again this year. Those of you who follow my blog, know that I participated last year also. Here is a link to my blog post from the last show.

I learned a few things last time that I am planning to do this time - and I'll be doing a few things differently. (and probably skipping a few things too).

First, I am staying with one genre this time - architectural. I plan on combining some paintings from last year along with some new ones. But all will center around architecture & buildings. 

I am also framing all paintings except for those on gallery wrapped canvas. Those have the paintings continued on all 4 sides, making it unnecessary to frame them. (but they can be framed if a buyer so chooses to have it done). The bulk of the paintings are my 9x12 canvas sheets, which I have matted & framed for the show. 

I am adding 3 of my tall-thin paintings that are 6x12 - all of entryways. I have those mounted on hardboard & framed. I found floating black frames on sale (1/2 price at Michaels) - they were intended to hold 3 small photographs each, however, when I removed the cut out mat, I found the frame size a perfect 6x12. Each entryway painting sits perfectly in the grooves (glass has been removed). Here's a photo of them framed (excuse the angle & lighting, this was a quick shot on the easel). I love how they look, and I will probably do more of this series sometime after the show:

I also decided to offer inexpensive matted prints of some of my paintings (architectural & also landscapes). Simple 5x7 good-quality laser prints, matted to 8x10 - perfect to buy & frame as you wish. All are prints of signed original paintings - and I have each print available in either a black or white mat. 

Any of you in the Paramus, NJ area that weekend, please stop by. I will be 1 of 100 artists at the show (pray for good weather please). And if any of you would like any of these 8x10 prints, please let me know - and if you have a specific painting of mine that you'd like in the smaller size, let me know which one!

Everything looks great Nan. I'm sure you'll do well. Interestingly I've seen quite a few things lately that say cityscape and buildings do better in cities and suburbs. Of course landscape, farm, horses etc. in the country. Your 6 x 12 are lovely framed. Funnily enough (but not unusual with us) I purchased some 6 x 12 and 6 x 16 canvases today and I've never seen that size here before. Thanks for the Michaels tip.

I hope your show goes swimmingly, Nan--your architectural works are lovely. These 6 X 12 entries are captivating and original. I am also drawn to your wonderful barn paintings as I browse your blog. So glad to have found you (via your comment on Nan Johnson's blog).

Whoops, Nan--I meant to say I found your blog via your comment on Debbie Nolan's blog. Think my brain is tiring of the computer, though blog surfing has been great fun.
